This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.

Support this week for electric vehicles in the Red Bull Global Rallycross championship.

Michael AndrettiThe series announced plans, or maybe hopes, for the cars starting in 2018.  Now Michael Andretti is on record liking the idea.
Andretti Autosport already campaigns in Formula E and may partner with BMW when the German manufacturer enters that championship next season.

Scott Speed2The team dominates GRC with Volkswagen now. Scott Speed could win his third straight title this year. Tanner Foust led the championship this year until Speed jumped ahead at the last stop in Atlantic City.

Rallycross is perfect for big torque race cars and that describes battery power. The short format races also lend themselves to battery power without recharging during the race.

Not mentioned is the fact that the GRC needs an infusion of factory cash as quickly as possible. Helping carmakers show off electric power to car buyers could get that support sooner than later.
